The Association for Mountain Parks Protection & Enjoyment.

AMPPEAMPPE is governed by a  Board of Directors, comprised of representatives from different business sectors in the mountain parks such as hotels, ski areas, and attractions. Directors may also be individuals who demonstrate a vested interest in the parks. A conscious effort is made to have equal representation across mountain parks and business sectors. The Board meets monthly to discuss AMPPE’s policies and directives.
